What is rubber extrusion and what does the process involve?
Rubber extrusion is the process of turning rubber materials into a specifically shaped product. To provide this shape, manufacturers use a rubber extruder machine.
The rubber extruder has two main parts: a heated shearing screw conveyor and a die.
The raw rubber material is processed through the screw that pushes the stock while it is heated in the conveyor channel.
From the hopper (container above the conveyor), the stock is sent to the conveyor where it is softened through heating and shearing and pressurized by the screw’s rotation process.
The pressurized stock is pushed into the die (located at the end of the extruder) and as it emerges it acquires its shape.
What are the benefits of rubber extrusion?
An efficient and economical manufacturing process.
The volume of wasted material in this process is minimal.
Rubber extrusion is a continuous process that can produce finished products of different lengths in a variety of shapes.
What are the benefits of rubber extruded products?
Extruded rubber products are lightweight, flexible, extremely durable and long-lasting.
They are highly resistant to chemicals, heat, cold, aging, fatigue, friction, abrasion wear and tear.
They are ideal for use in a myriad of harsh or extreme conditions.
